PECHORRO, Pedro et al. Psychometric properties of the Socially Desirable Response Set Measure (SDRS-5) among institutionalized youths:. Psicologia [online]. 2016, vol.30, n.1, pp.29-36. ISSN 0874-2049.

The main aim of the present study was to examine the psychometric properties of the Socially Desirable Response Set Measure (SDRS-5) among a sample of institutionalized youths. Based on this sample (N = 221), the Portuguese version of the SDRS-5 demonstrated good psychometric properties, namely in terms of factor structure, internal consistency, convergent validity, and discriminant validity that support its use for Portuguese adolescents samples. In terms of criterion-related validity, negative correlations were found between SDRS-5 scores and alcohol use, cannabis use, cocaine/heroin use, and unprotected sex.
